Question about Kenmore 44921 Front Load Washer
"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication of an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases, the drain pump reservoir needs to be cleaned out. The following link explains how:
If you check the drain pump reservoir and the problem still persists, you may have a pump with a damaged motor/impeller, or something lodged in one of the drain lines. In particular, the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump.
I recommend you remove the inlet hose, as well, and inspect for clogs. In is common for small garments to become lodged in this area and restrict water flow to the drain pump. Check the output drain line for obstructions as well.
It does not take much to damage this small drain pumps. The error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes. So...if the impeller or motor become damaged, and the pump does not pull water at the correct volume, you may still experience the drain error. In this case, you will have to replace the pump in order to get the error to clear. The following link explains how:

F02 is usually long or slow drain.
1.Check the drain hose for kinks.
2.Check inside the door see if there is anything stuck in drain hole.
There is also a screen/ filter in the pump housing that gets clogged up with junk(lint, change, clothes, Hair , etc) If you are kind of mechanically inclined and want to attempt to clean it I will give you detailed instructions it can be a very messy job and also may leak a lot of water on floor depending on how much water is left in machine for this reason you may want to call a service tech.
Please let me know if I can help in any other way.

How to fix a Whirlpool Duet & Duet sport error code F02. Repairing your F02 error code can usually be done without ordering parts. Tools needed to repair your Duet F02 error code are towels and a quarter inch socket.
Tip the washer back at a 45 degree angle. On the bottom panel there are three or four screws, with the screws removed the panel will slide down and off. With the lower access panel now removed you will have access to the washers drain pump clean out.
With the water already bailed from the washer you can twist the filter head counter-clockwise to remove. Twisting the filter head counter-clockwise will loosen filter so it can be pulled out. With the filter out, clean and install back into washer.
